Kognia Sports Intelligence

We are a young Barcelona-based startup funded by football industry leaders including superstar Xavi Hernández. Since opening our office in early 2019 with the founders plus 2 engineers, we have grown to 20+.

We have a backlog of improvements and exciting new features to implement in advance of a major public release for the 2021-2022 football season, and we need your help!
